Seated on his left is Mr. Sam Nda Isiah, while on his right are Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former Head of State Muhammadu Buhari all APC presidential aspirants.

The opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, has cleared all the five aspirants seeking to be the candidate of the party in the 2015 elections.

Those screened by the committee chaired by former National Chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, Ogbonnaya Onu, at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja are former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha, and newspaper publisher, Sam Nda-Isaiah.

Before presenting them with certificates of clearance, Wednesday, Mr. Onu said the APC has mandated them all to sign letters of commitment to the party.

He added that part of the details in the letter include the commitment to improve the wellbeing of Nigerians, improve security and for those who lose to support the winner by collapsing their structure into that of the party so that the APC can go into the elections as a united party.

“Yesterday we met for four hours with the aspirants, during the exercise, we found out that these men are so distinguished that there is not one that won’t make a great difference for the country,” Mr. Onu said.

“We tested their understanding of the nation’s problems, and I am happy and satisfied with the quality of people running for President under the platform of the APC.

“I want to also reveal that the scores were very narrow and very high, the least scored 62 percent, while the highest scored 78 percent,” he said.

Former Head of State, Mr. Buhari responded on behalf of the aspirants and commended the party’s leadership for putting up such a strong screening committee.

“We went through the mill yesterday on foreign affairs, security, economy and the impact of what our personal decisions are to the polity,” Mr. Buhari said.

          This is what worries me about several APC supporters. A history of abuse and violence. Not necessary at all..

    Atiku is a true democrat who believes in Nigeria, He has the determination and experience to move Nigeria foward. His policy plans coupled with his experience makes him the ideal APC presidential candidate. Atiku isn’t sectional or tribal but uniting and accommodating of all. Your country needs you Turaki. #Nigeriaforall

  • Zirem

    Its one thing to want to be the president of Nigeria and is entirely a different ball to be ready to be the president. Atiku through his ideas filled campaign programs has shown what it takes to be ready for the job. Atiku 2015. #ANigeriaForAll

    The Heart of the Almighty Creator for all the nations has not been faithfully and adequately presented to English readers of the Bible. This is probably because English nations have been pretending to replace Israel nation in the Ministry of the Almighty. However, when you look at English nations (especially, USA and Britain), you see the fruits that are inimical to the eternal Kingdom; fruits like eugenics, postmodernism, mysticism, New Age Movement, New World Order, etc. Thus nations are being devoured by means of the Dragon’s Anglo-Zionist alchemy.
    You mention that it is Africa’s turn! Nevertheless, Africans (especially, Christians) are also been devoured by the same Dragon using subliminal seduction, etc.
    The real Solution was called a Mystery by Paul in his prison letters: The Almighty has always had an eternal Kingdom Mystery set-apart nation to bless all others. It consists of the foreordained believers from ALL the nations. Please really study Ephesians 2:10-22; 3:1-6; 1 Peter 2:4-10; Matthew 21:43
